Batman & Robin: The Chiller question

Friday, May 9, 2003 11:57 AM
I am going to SFGADv this weekend and was just wondering if any of you knew if both tracks of Batman & Robin: the Chiller are in operation. I own a season pass, so I have been going fairly often, but whenever I am there, only the Robin (Red) track is open. Does anyone know the cause of this?

As of now, it's only Robin. Last time I was there some of the LIM's from the top of Batman's spike were missing. I'm just guessing, but I'd say Batman won't open until around Memorial Day.

I believe the same, but when u go decide to go on it early because it is always crowded on weekends. I rode it when superman opened but the line was not long, only walk ons. I think you'll love the robin side because the airtime going through the zero g roll, forward and backward, is truly amazing! One of the best feelings I had on a zero g- roll. I think it is starting to get better than Medusa's.

I didn't notice the missing LIM's on Batman (went yesterday. Wasn't specifically looking for 'em but was definitely studying Robins a few times). The train is not on site for Batman, and Robin has been a bit tempermental.

I have not rode The Chiller since the 17th, but when I did Batman was not to be seen anyway. I think its a shame they cant get both sides running, The Chiller is one of the best rides in the park, and I feel way ahead of its time when it opened up. Exp: X.

Well, no luck. Batman was closed this Sunday when I went, only Robin. I did look for the missing LIMS at the top of the spike and noticed they were gone. I hope it opens soon!

Actually some of Batman's lims were added to Robin. Don't expect Batman up for quite a while.


Robin is now launching at 72 MPH by the way ;)

I think that coaster was ahead of its time. Dismantle it and have Intamin construct a new version. Since the going trend is automobiles (57 Chevy, Dragster), how about a Batmobile train?

So they took some LIM's off of Batman and put them on Robin to increase the speed?

That's interesting. I bet the coaster wont valley as much now.

I don't think I want to be on that thing now that the LIM's have been tampered with. It's time to recognize the mistake and dismatle.

Dismantle the second best launched coaster on the planet with the best element in the world. Sure.

Head through that zero G backwards and tell me you want it dismantled.

And the increased speed is to keep it from valleying.

If it were ME (obviously it wasn't), I'd have taken the LIMs off "The Boy Wonder" so that the REAL superhero could navigate the course with the extra speed.....even WITH the horrible OTSR's, Batman Chiller was one of my favorite launches....the TopHat is simply THAT good....really...

I guess when they get a round tuit, then they'll start fixing "Robin's better half"....;)

I always thought the Boy Wonder kicked the Caped crusaders butt Bill.

While the top hat is great it in no way matches the intensity found on Robin. Huge Positive G's.

yeah, I would NEVER want them to take down the Chiller for some Intimin launch coaster. If anything I wanna see more Premier launch coasters!

It was a collaborative effort. S:RoS was the real brains behind the operation ;)

Chiller, Chiller, Chiller... I can't think of anything better than that zero-G with lap bars. Enough Said! As for favorite rides... I always enjoyed running along side of cars on the garden state parkway, right vacoasterfreak? lol
